Full Text

1 From all that's mortal, all that's vain,
And from this earthly clod:
Arise my soul and strive to gain,
Sweet fellowship with God.

2 Say, what is there beneath the skies,
In all the paths thou'st trod;
Can suit thy wishes or thy joys,
Like fellowship with God.

3 Not life, nor all the toys of art,
Nor pleasure's flowery road;
Can to my soul such bliss impart,
As fellowship with God.

4 Not health, nor friendship here below,
Nor wealth that golden load;
Can such delight or comfort show,
As fellowship with God.

5 When I am made in love to bear,
Affliction's needful rod;
Light, sweet and kind the strokes appear,
Through fellowship with God.

6 In fierce temptation's fiery blast,
Or dark desertion's road;
I'm happy if I can but taste,
Some fellowship with God.

7 So when the icy hand of death,
Shall chill my flowing blood;
With joy I'll yield my latest breath,
In fellowship with God.

8 When I at last to heaven ascend,
And gain my blest abode;
There an eternity I'll spend,
In fellowship with God.

A Selection of Hymns, from Various Authors, Supplementary for the use of Christians. 1st Ed., 1816

Having been severely wounded in a battle with the French fleet off Port Lagos, in 1759, he was obliged to retire from active service. A sermon by Dr. Watts, read to him about this time, led to his conversion. He joined the Baptist Church in Eagle Street, London, then under the care of Dr. Gifford, and shortly afterwards opened a school, which for several years he conducted with great success. Having begun to preach, he received, in 1767, a call to become pastor of the Baptist church at Watford. Thence, in 1772, he removed to Byrom Street, Liv… Go to person page >
